Moving from POP to Exchange

We currently are using pop connector on our exchange server to receive mail. We now wish to begin receiving mail via SMTP direct to our exchange server. (exchange 2010). What changes do i need to make to ensure it all goes smoothly once i change MX record ?

Generally you need to open port 25 on your routers firewall section and port forward to the internal server running exchange, also port 443 if you want to access your OWA site externally...

After that it should start working

Thanks. I have a number of domains which need to deliver mail. For example (and using fake email addressess obviously)  i have info@golf.ie, info@thegolf.ie, info@goodgolf.ie which all need to go to info mailbox. Do i just setup aliases via AD/Exchange or is there something else i need to do?

Generally yes...so you've created the info user account in AD, go into the Exchange Management console and into Receipient config, Mailbox

Right click info, Properties - Email address tab and enter in the emails relevant

Note also in Exchange management console, Org config, Hub Transport, Accepted domains - you need to list all your domain names in there as well before this will work

I have added them. Does it matter which is default ? Currently it a .local address.

To confirm.

I am about to make MX record change.

I have port 25 open and pointing to exchange server and added accepted domains.
Is there anything else i need to do before i change MX record ?

A .local can't be the default...you need the default to be the proper domain you are working with

So set the default to be the correct domain and it should work fine yes
